Grilled Skirt Steak Sliders with Salsa Verde Aioli
These sliders are a perfect size for a gathering or smaller main dish. The marinated Skirt Steak is easy to prepare and bursting with grilled flavor. Topped with a fresh Salsa Verde Aioli sauce that is also made in minutes.
To keep the skirt steak from becoming chewy in texture it is recommended it be cooked to a medium rare, with instructions on how to do so in the recipe.

Instructions for the Marinade:
Place all of the marinade ingredients into a sealable plastic bag or a closed container with the steak. If using a bag, remove as much air as possible before sealing and massage the marinade into the steak. If using a sealed container, turn the container over a few times to fully coat the steak. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. Massage the bag or turn the container a few times during the marinating time.
Preheat a gas grill to High. Have barbeque tongs, a timer and a fresh plate ready before beginning to grill.
When the heat reaches between 400-500 degrees, place the skirt steak on the grill, close the lid and allow it to cook for 2 minutes. Turn to the opposite side and allow it to cook 2 minutes more. Remove from the grill and place on the clean plate. Allow the steak to rest for 10 minutes.
Instructions for the Salsa Verde Aioli:
In the bowl of a food processor (or a blender) combine the Dijon mustard, garlic and 1/3 cup of the extra virgin olive oil and puree.
Add the mint and parsley and process into a paste.
Slowly pour in the rest of the oil.
Add the red wine and vinegar. Season to taste.
Preparing the steak and sandwiches:
Once the steak has rested, cut each strip into approximately 4-inch long sections cutting with the grain (across the width of the steak). Slice the 4-inch sections against the grain (the length of the section) to make 1/2-inch strips.
Divide the steak evenly across 12 split slider buns or dinner rolls. Drizzle the Salsa Verde Aioli on top of the steak, add the top of the bun and served. Sandwiches may be secured with a decorative toothpick.
The total cook time is dependent on the length of time the steak marinates. For the times included in the top of the recipe, 1 hour marinating time is used.The Salsa Verde Aioli recipe is courtesy of The Kitchen Cafe
